As a number of media outlets have reported, the victim vehicle involved in the early Wednesday morning shooting at Tremont and Prince Streets had Uber and Lyft stickers on its windshield. We are grateful for the assistance provided to the Berkeley Police Department by Uber in confirming that the vehicle was not actively in service with their company. We have not yet determined if the car was in service by a Lyft operator when the incident occurred.  

The two victims remain in critical condition at Alameda County Hospital-Highland. No suspects have been arrested and the investigation is ongoing. 

We are asking for the Community’s support in bringing justice to the victims. We encourage anyone who witnessed the event or has additional information to contact the Berkeley Police Department at 981-5900.
